Maybe Imagination should do that, maybe not. But ARM does not systematically "bundle" Mali GPUs with Cortex CPUs.

That said, ARM does "negotiate" its terms with licensees, a process that can take up to six months.

Good point. Can the author share some specs??

Will Microchip use this new core (currently PIC32 is based on MIPS)? Some data about performance would be interesting.

What are the implications for design engineers of having another strong player in the field? Lower prices? More choices? Second source? Seems like there is not much downside.

Imgtec should bundle a free/almostfree MIPS license with every license of PowerVR graphics core. the same way ARM bundles Mali graphics with its CPU.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
